Quick Review: In the third episode of the Nikolas and Company series, Nikolas’s best friend, Xanthus, is slowly turning to stone, and all he can do is watch. The boy steward will have to take a stand against the Council of Teine, the wicked Sheriff Silas Gorringe, creepy orphanage keepers, a mischievous automaton arcade, a horde of blood-thirsty gorgons, and even his closest friends, to try and find a cure for Xanthus Kobayashi. Nikolas is in a race to save his best friend from the breath of the creature most foul.
Detailed Review: Once again, struck speechless. Nothing I can say will convey how asd;flkajsf;kosi AMAZING The Foul and The Fallen is, except that it is way more awesome than the first two books in the series.
The story starts off from where it ended in the second book. Xanthus, has until the Ferret Festival until he completely turns to stone. Meanwhile, the creature most foul is ravaging Huron. But then, the twist happens. THE TWIST. THE TWIST THAT CHANGES EVERYTHING.
WHO CAN THINK OF SUCH A GOOD STORY? This author, obviously. And he isn't human. He could be a Merrow impersonating as a human. This book is certainly for Harry Potter fans and you find that you can't stop reading, not until you reach the last page, because you're dying to know what happens next. It just amazes me how Kevin manages to keep the transition from one event to another so smooth and without delay or hesitation.
As for the characters, there is a bit of romance in between Nikolas and Helen Wendell and I really can't wait to find out how they progress. As for Tim, I STILL don't like him. Not even bribes will get me to say that I like him. So don't bother trying.
Maybe what the author shouldn't have done though, is to leave the huge gaping CLIFFHANGER in the book. But I will wait. It is worth it. But if the ending in the last book of the series is HORRIBLE, I swear I will die of a heart attack.
Brief Review: I really enjoyed this book! It's just so AMAZING how the author's mind can produce such a story. It's just astounding... But like I said, he's not human.
Final Rating: 5/5 'Totally Amazing!'
To Nikolas's friends who neglected Xanthus, they should learn this lesson...
